Only 30 minutes from Dublin City lies the working fishing port and picturesque harbour of Howth. Here the commercial world of fishing mingles well with the tourism economy of this small town. Fishmonger stores, carrying an array of local and Atlantic fish are adjacent to some of the finest fish restaurants in Ireland. In the harbour the sailing boats give way graciously to the fishing trawlers and the sea gulls chase the boats as they return, ladened with prawn, crab and lobster.
Howth Head lies above the habour and has a variety of walks and tracks suitable for most visitors. The head is easily accessible by car and a car park is located right on the summit. Visitors arriving by train can walk the East Cliff path..
